Let there be light - that was the message on Preen’s catwalk this morning, as indicated by the spotlights outside the Natural History Museum, bathing the vast space in pools of pink light. It was an apt set up for the design duo, who brought their mainline collection across the Atlantic back to London last year; occupying a slot in the middle of fashion week, their collections always come across as a kind of a palate cleanser. This is not to say they are in the business of muted neutrals; quite the contrary, they served a brilliant cocktail of acid pinks, floral prints and sugary pastels but with a confident sleight of hand that lets nothing superfluous slide through.

Inspired by architectural interiors and the Miami coast, Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi focused on sharp silhouettes, streamlining the body into imposing white columns, interrupted only by artful origami folds and geometric hems. Preen’s light touch – in the swathes of sheer organza layered over kaleidoscopic floral and digital prints – made for seductively alluring yet elegant summer wardrobe. 

There was also a new, more playfully provocative streak running through, from shocking neon rubber minis under floral macs, to the styling with Sophia Webster’s cool candy-coloured heels. It was the perfect ingénue attire, already set to fearlessly take the spotlight. Pay attention: just like her, these are clothes that are guaranteed to make the rounds in 6 months.
